I normally don't write reviews but I felt the need. We checked in to a non-smoking, no pet room. What we got was dog hair all over the floor, cigarette burns in the sheets. We checked out the bathroom hair... human and dog all over the shower walls. Next thing I know... we see a roach scurrying along the dresser.... More

I stayed here once before and had a great experience. My usual hotel was sold out for the night so I decided to stay here again. The room was clean, the staff was friendly and for the price, you couldn't ask for anything better. I think the people that complain are expecting 5 star quality and this is not a... More

This is not a good hotel, but for the money that we paid couldn't ask for more. We stayed there for Memorial weekend, from Friday to Monday. During our stay the room was never even looked at (despite the sign being up), we had roaches everywhere, our shower was dirty some kind of red liquid was left without nobody cleaning... More

Somehow my last review was pulled, but I will not be silenced. After all the helpful reviews savings me headaches all over the world I made it my business to give back to my fellow travelers by posting my experiences here. This hotel was a horrendous experience. For $78, we had to change our room twice. Hairs on the sheets,... More

We stayed at this property several times when it was Days Inn and always enjoyed it. It is convenient to the Port of Tampa and we stay there when going on a cruise. This is the first time we stayed after changing to Rodeway Inn, and it is still a good deal. The room was very clean, the A.C worked... More

Well, what can I say? You get what you pay for? Nothing could have fully prepared me for the cesspool of wretchedness that is the Rodeway Inn. To say the pictures are misleading is to say Hitler had anger issues. The neighborhood was nice, if you like outdoor crack-houses and wondering if, at any second, you will witness a murder.... More

This is just an opinion: The lady at the front desk was very nice and the while checking out, the desk guy was very nice. I don't doubt for a minute, that the family that runs this hotel is very nice and good people. It's just in the wrong neighborhood and very poor upkeep. There were too many things to... More
